4:06 pm
was there any doubt that his speech was addressing them in their plight you know fill the pope today spoke a lot about peace and he spoke about the necessity that to achieve a genuine and a lasting peace it was necessary that there be an underlying spirit of tolerance and of solidarity and he also said that it was necessary that the rights of all religious and ethnic groups be respected and i think there's no doubt that with all the also meant. given the statements that he's made in the past where he's spoken out very vocally on their behalf also naming them not here today but i think yes his message also included there were although fail and this is true he did not name them explicitly today he has been outspoken on their behalf in the past why do you think you today. i think the pope was
4:07 pm
under a lot of pressure in the run up to this speech today there were he was pressured by human rights activists by representatives of the hinge of minority themselves by representatives of other muslim groups they all wanted him to use the term role in that because it gives these people and identity and identity that they're being denied by me and my military by the myanmar government and also by some parts of the population in myanmar so that's why they wanted him to use that term now on the other hand even the cardinal here in me and mark cautioned the pope he said don't use this word because it will it's a very sensitive issue and a lot of emotions are tied to it and it will deepen the divides between the religious religious groups and it will it will make that reconsider the ation of the religious religious groups even harder so in the end it was the pope's decision
4:08 pm
